Travel Day: Heading to the Carribean
Sorry it’s been so quiet these past few days. Liz and I have been busy preparing for our vacation, which kicks in this weekend.
We’re joining some of the Beeson family, and going on a cruise (my first, ever) to the Caribbean islands. Should be an interesting time, as I’m really hoping I don’t get too seasick.
In our frenzy to pack, Liz and I were up pretty late the night before our flight. So much so that we both got about 2 hours sleep, before we had to get up, get ready, and make our way to the airport.
Needless to say, today has been a kind of haze. I slept, off and on, for most of the 3 hour flight to Florida… and my main goal today is to get into a bed, as soon as humanly possible.
I’ve got a laptop with me this time around, so my hope is to document a bit more of the vacation as it happens. Probably not anything extensive, but at least posting up a few photos each day would be nice.
My one regret so far: in the rush to get out the door, I forgot to pack my copy of David Foster Wallace’s essay collection, A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again. The whole book is great, but it would have been nice to read the title essay once more (about his first time on a cruise), while on board.
Next update should be from on board, with much less land and much more water beneath my feet. More soon.
